Cosy House close to historical city center in ROUEN, Normandy : culture and history !

Dear Intervac friends ,
We live in ROUEN, Normandy, only 150 km North West from Paris (70 mn by train , 90 mn by car ) and East from DDay beaches ( 1h drive) .
Normandy is the area where famous french writers  lived and famous painters  such as Monet and others painted beautiful landscapes in Giverny , Etretat , Le Havre ...
So what about a swap in Normandy , so many things to do, so many beautiful landscapes to discover, either in summer or in other season ?
Welcome in a comfortable and big city house !
Our semi detached house ( typical 19 cty house ,built in1898 ) is located in a quiet area  very near  the historical town center .You can hear birds singing and  bells  ringing as if you were in a village ! Rouen  was named "100 church towers town" by V.Hugo .
The house is about 240sqm with 3 floors .
Kitchen and  dining-living room have   direct access to the south terrace , down to the typical town -garden  , where children can play badmington or ping pong and parents  enjoy bbq  or resting in the shadow of the  old big birch tree...
On second floor, you'll find  master's bedroom , girl's room (each with washbasin room), friends' room  with a shower room ,and a large  family bathroom. 
On the third floor are   boys' bedrooms, one with a modern bathroom ,the other with a washbasin room , and a TV  room .

About Our Family

We are now an almost retired couple , so we don't travel with our entire family of 5 !
If our adult  children don't travel with us, we may ask for travelling with close relatives or a couple of friends.
 We are fond of  travelling with Intervac , a great experience ! It's such a perfect way to discover other countries , cultures and  way of life .We don' consider anything else !
Previous  ( sucessful ! ) exchanges:  2004 Pontevedra Spain ,2004 Amsterdam ,2005 Finland Lapperanta ,2007 Spain Barcelona ,2008 San Francisco USA, 2009 Stockholm Sweden ,2010 Reunion Island France ,2011Haltwistle England ,  2012 Aarhus DK , 2017 , the we had a long stop in exchanges before coming back as it's really a wonderful experience we enjoyed very much !
We all enjoy very much   this  way of travelling and we'll take care of your home as if it were ours.
We like very much to prepare our home for you , dear new guests, to make you fell comfortable to discover the french way of life.
As for the apartment in PARIS it 's mainly used during working periods and must be free for exchanges during holidays periods for 2 people maximum.
As for our main home in ROUEN there is a need of "cat sitter" all year long when we are away !
As for our holiday home in FOURAS ( where there is no cat to take car off ) disposability is mainly OFF during summer holiday or holidays periods in France , but we can arrange some swap however.
